The Down Payment

These days, the competitiveness of mortgage lenders opens up your options for the down payment. In some cases, you want to put 20% down towards your new home because at that level you can avoid paying private mortgage insurance. In other cases, 10% or even 5% may be required. If your calculations indicate that you can't put enough down, you may have to come up with creative ways to buy a home.
